The Salford Trail

Explore the heritage, countryside and rural areas of Salford with
a series of ten walks.

The Salford Trail is a new, long distance walk of about 50 miles/80 kilometres
and entirely within the boundaries of the City of Salford. The route is varied, going
through rural areas and green spaces, with a little road walking in between. Starting
from the cityscape of Salford Quays, the Trail passes beside rivers and canals,
through country parks, fields, woods and moss lands. It uses footpaths, tracks and
disused railway lines known as 'loop lines'. The Trail circles around to pass through
Kersal, Agecroft, Walkden, Boothstown and Worsley before heading off to Chat Moss.
After crossing this vast landscape, the Trail returns to Salford Quays from the
historic Barton swing bridge and aqueduct.

The Trail has been divided into sections, each accessible by public transport. There
is a leaflet for each section describing the route and giving the transport options.

For background on the local history that you will come across on the trail or for
information on wildlife please visit The Salford Trail.
